From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Coursing is the pursuit of game or other animals by dogs —chiefly Greyhounds and other sighthounds — catching the prey by speed, running by sight and not by scent. Coursing was a common hunting technique, practiced both by the nobility, the landed and wealthy, as well as commoners with sighthounds and Lurchers . In its oldest recorded form in the Western world, as described by Arrian the sport was practiced by all levels of society, as remained the case until Carolingian hunting law (Forest Law) appropriated hunting grounds, or commons, for the king, the nobility and other land owners. Animals coursed include hares rabbits foxes deer of all sorts, antelope gazelle jackals wolves ... Jackrabbits and coyotes are the most common animals coursed in America . Competitive coursing in Ireland, the UK and Spain has two dogs running together. In America, generally speaking three dogs are run together. The Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act and the Hunting Act 2004 (in England and Wales) made it illegal to course hares under any circumstances or to course rabbits without the landowner's permission. In Australia coursing is illegal under

Sailplane Winch Information
Lure coursing equipment is that which is used to create an artificial or mechanical lure (often referred to as "the bunny") which can travel at speeds in excess of 50 mph. The artificial lure is pursued by any animal or bird that possesses a strong prey instinct.
The modern day version of this type of equipment was conceived (in the US around 1971) and developed by various sighthound enthusiasts for the purpose of testing their dogs instinct and physical abilities in a competitive event. This equipment is now used by sighthound people in various competitive lure coursing field trials and racing events. The equipment is also used by other dog owners for various reasons such as physical conditioning and for just the sheer enjoyment of watching a dog have fun. Lure coursing is "funnnnn" for the dogs...they do it because they want to run fast and chase an artificial lure...they cannot be forced to chase a lure.
The equipment is now used by several zoos to exercise and condition Cheetahs and African Wild Dogs. Falconers utilize lure coursing equipment to both train and condition their short wing hawks (those raptors that hunt game on the ground) and to perform educational demonstrations of a hawks hunting techniques and flight abilities without sacrificing live game.

    About the Lure Coursing FAQ
    The first version of this FAQ, a 74 line (page and a half) document, originally prepared by Marcia Cavan with additional info from Carol Mount was posted as part of the AKC FAQ. Since its scope was broadened from AKC only details, it was moved out of the AKC FAQ into an independent FAQ. However, the document quickly ballooned to 2000+ lines, making it difficult to read as a single document. This version returns to its "roots" as a FAQ for those who know little about the Lurecoursing. The Lurecoursing Homepage, with extensive and detailed information on this sport, is available at Bonnie Dalzells site under
    What Is Lure Coursing?
    Lure Coursing is a humane sport which attempts to imitate the coursing of the rabbit or hare by sighthounds but without the hare. The sighthounds chase an artificial lure, usually a white kitchen garbage bag, sometimes tanned rabbit skins, or fake fur strips. To set up the "lure" coursing course a line composed of braided fishing line (usually 100 pound test 'trolling' line) is passed around a series of pulleys staked to the ground within a large field (at least 5 acres).

    About Lure Coursing
    Lure Coursing is a performance event developed in the early 70's by Lyle Gillette and other California sighthound fanciers who hunted jackrabbits in the open field, which risked the harm caused by barbed wire fencing. They invented lure coursing as a safer, more controlled sport for sighthounds that would recreate the physical requirements of open field coursing, allowing them to continue testing the functional abilities of their sighthounds. The hounds chase plastic bags on a course laid out to simulate escaping game. The hounds will run the course twice, a preliminary run and a final run. Scores from both runs are added for a combined total score. Hounds are awarded placements and points based on where they finished and the number of hounds they competed against. The hounds are running not only for fun and to keep their natural abilities alive, but also for titles. Titles Equipment Trials

    Information. Lure Coursing is an exciting athletic sport for your dog. However, as with anything in life, to perform at peak ability, the athlete must be in good condition. Poor conditioning can lead to accidents and we want to avoid that at all costs. Lure coursing is an exciting and strenous sport for your hound. There is risk of injury. You, the owner, has to decide what risks your hound may or may not take. The risk and responsibility for your hound is yours. The owners should educate themselves: after all, you are the trainer of a performance hound. You should know how to train your hound for a specific sport, safely and effectively. It takes time, effort, consistency and willingness on the owners’ part to get the hound into shape. Any hound will love every minute of the training because of the exercise and companionship he is getting from you.

    We are Lure Coursing Fanatics! The FIRST All Breed Lure Coursing Club in the US. That's all we do - and we do it well! We have a completely fenced field (no worries of dogs running off or loose dogs interfering on the course), experience running dogs of almost every breed (including the super fast sighthounds) and guidance from those that have been in the coursing business for MANY years (special thanks to Pat and Jim, our mentors!). And we have helped other clubs get started! We want to bring the joy of coursing to ANY dog that wants to run!
    Is everyone else sick of this snow?!? As much as we would love to be runni9ng dogs - right now the field is snow on top of ice on top of snow (with more on the way). We can run in just snow but it is not safe to run when there's ice in the mix. Please keep an eye on the website. As soon as it is safe to start running again - we'll post dates and send out emails!!

    What that means is that it s my job to oversee and promote the medieval sport of coursing within our Kingdom and the SCA at large.
    Welcome to the Homepage of the Meridian Coursing Guild! I am THL Peryn Rose Whytehorse, the new Kingdom Houndmistress. What that means is that it's my job to oversee and promote the medieval sport of coursing within our Kingdom and the SCA at large. SCA coursing is non-competitive, and unless there is a restriction from the site where the event is held, all breeds are welcome to try coursing. For those unfamiliar with the SCA, it is a volunteer organization. Members who participate in coursing all try to lend a hand with setting up and taking down courses, with fund raising, and with promoting the program in any way possible according to their time, skills, and ability. We do not charge fees for coursing events or practices because the vast majority of SCA folks who course already give generously of their time and money to support the program. New initiatives: I am working on: 1) putting members in contact with a trainer for hound certification as canine good citizens, and 2) finding ways to include hounds more at events, particularly indoors. Iarlles Aeruin is working on putting together a junior and novice fewterer program to get youth involved in coursing.

    Lure Coursing Lure coursing, the most popular event for the Sighthound breeds, entails an open field competition. This competition attempts to create a simulation of a hare's zigzag path to evade a pursing hound. The hare's path is generated by a continuous-loop line through a series of pulleys simulating a non-uniform set of turns. Instead of a live bunny, a set of white bags attached to the line attract the hound's attention. At a competition, hounds of the same breed run in trios with traditional greyhound style racing blankets. The hounds are judged not on time, rather on enthusiasm, ability to follow the lure, speed, agility and endurance. A hound may earn recognized titles through the American Sighthound Field Association (ASFA) and the American Kennel Club (AKC) similar to the titles for conformance competition. The rules for the competitions are similar for ASFA and AKC.

    How To Get Started
    The best way to get started is to bring your dog to a coursing practice where new participants learn the tricks of the trade. Coursing comes naturally to most sighthounds (they seem to chase anything that moves). As well as excellent exercise for the hounds, lure coursing is a fun outdoor event for hounds and humans alike.
